About this book

Colleagues and friends of Dan Yaron submitted the following tributes. While each submission comes from an individual who knew Dan in a very different way, they all remark on his immeasurable contributions to the field of agricultural eco­ nomics, his unique approach, which combines his training and experience with his scientific background, and the admirable professionalism and civility that was apparent in every project he undertook. His work, initially inspired by the chal­ lenge of farmers in the arid Negev, eventually took him to the United States to work with universities and to serve on commissions furnishing his research with global applicability. Dan is not only admired for his enormous contributions to the vast body of research available in his field, but also for the commitment and dedi­ cation he epitomized. He will be greatly missed by those of us who were fortunate enough to make his acquaintance. ELIFEINERMAN The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Rehovot, Israel Dan Yaron, my teacher and mentor of blessed memory, was a man of wisdom, thought, counsel and deeds. His many talents, his endless energy and his ambition led him to blaze new trails in research, to ask the relevant questions while separat­ ing the wheat from the chaff, and to answer them while mastering the most ad­ vanced scientific analyses.

Reviews

From the reviews:
"This book should be read and used by environmental economists, water and environmental managers, planners, policy makers and academics. This publication is not just relevant to Israel but to professionals dealing with economic evaluation of water quality in arid regions."
(The Journal of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management, November 2003)
